Shire Ditch


Shire Ditch (Dyke) by morfe Along Shire Ditch on the summit of Pinnacle Hill, one may find two nameless tumuli, side by side. They are possible Bronze Age burial mounds and listed as scheduled ancient monuments.

This view shows the southernmost of the two tumuli in the foreground. They are quite small, and have a definite 'robbed' appearance as can be seen here.

It's partner can be seen directly behind to the North.

The site lies along a footpath and is trampled daily, often unseen.
